English IV

WELCOME!
 
EXPERIENCE:
The 2019-20 school year marks the start of my tenure in Farmersville. My previous teaching and coaching experience includes stops at Uvalde Junior High/Uvalde High School, Cooper High School in Abilene, Kemp High School, and Everman Joe C. Bean High School. In addition to teaching English 4 this year, I have also taught English 1 and 2, ESL, social studies (Texas history, U.S. History, and economics), and professional communications.
 
BACKGROUND:
I was born in Dallas, but my hometown is San Antonio. I am a graduate of John Marshall High School in 1994. I earned a BA in mass communication with a minor in political science from Texas State University (known as Southwest Texas State University at the time) in San Marcos. My mother is a U.S. Army Nurse Corps veteran who served 21 years. Following college graduation, I had a seven-year career as an award-winning journalist before starting in education and coaching.
